    Mum: *blah blah blah something something about tomorrow what she’s doing*… Are you unhappy that I'm not at home tomorrow? You look unhappy? Me: No, I'm trying very hard not to listen to what you're saying. I haven't written today and you're taking up my brain space with all the extra...

    YAAAYYY!!!! I just finished watching all the videos. Oh gosh, it was very difficult. :< starting to worry about how I’m going to handle this course. Like for the songwriting one, the first week was easy. I didn’t have to watch the videos more than once. For this music course there’s so many...

  16. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    I've always kind of liked the idea of writing songs but it never seems to work out for me. Something about being a fundamentally happy person, I think. :P But I'm curious if there are any ENTP songwriters out there, and what kind of lyrics you write? Famous examples would be cool too. Thanks!

Cos I was hiding in a corner and had to like… sing soft enough so my grandparents can’t hear, but loud enough that the mic can record, but I can’t sit too high when I record or the mic can’t pick me up? And then I also had...
